This is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and Bookish!
I’ve been excited to write this for weeks!
I absolutely love book covers and they definitely have an impact on me. I will judge a book by its cover and I will judge harshly! Which is why it’s particularly annoying when I read a great book with an awful cover. Perhaps I’ll do a post on that in the future!
But for now: my top ten (current) favourite covers that I would love as framed pieces of art in my house!
1. Love and Treasure by Aleyet Waldman
We just got this book at work the other day and it has the most amazing cover . Unfortunately it doesn’t show up as well in a photograph. The actual cover is embossed with gold and IT’S SO GODDAMN PRETTY.
2. Paris by Edward Rutherfurd
This even has a super lovely picture on the back as well.
3. The Storyteller by Rabih Alameddine
I actually couldn’t find a decent picture of this online, so I present: dodgy photo taken on my phone
This shows the gold much better anyway :) I love this cover so much!
4. The Tea Chest by Josephine Moon
I’m reading this book at the moment and it’s great! The cover is just absolutely my favourite thing right now. It’s just so cute!
5. Questions of Travel by Michelle de Kretser
I enjoy this :)
6. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkowski
I love books with dresses on them! This photo also does not this cover justice, the lettering is actually silver and shiny, and ever so pretty.
7. The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith
I adore this cover. Not only do I love the picture, the colours, the positioning of the title, but this cover really reflects the atmosphere of this book. It’s a crime novel about a moody private investigator. This cover is perfect.
This cover however, is AWFUL. What is this?? This gives the complete opposite suggestion to what the book actually is. If this had been the cover I’d originally seen I would NOT have been anywhere near as interested. In fact, if I saw that cover and never found out that Robert Galbraith was a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, there is no way in hell I would’ve picked up this book!
8. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I picked up a beautiful hardcover copy of this when I was in Canada, but the Australian edition is lovely too. They both definitely capture this book perfectly.
9. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
Once again, the Australian edition of this is great, but I have the UK edition, which I LOVE.
10. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
The cover is what drew me to this, and I’m so glad it did. I officially love Rainbow Rowell. Even if this is the only book I’ve read of hers so far, I own all the others and am super excited to read them! They also all have very nice covers :)
Joanne Harris’ books
They’re all so pretty!
Harry Potter signature series
This series is so nice. I have a few of them and as much I love my original covers, mostly for nostalgic reasons, these ones are beautiful.
You can buy those here :)
House in Via Manno by Milena Agus
Man, vintage classics are so nice. I want all of them!
Here are some of the lovely ones I already own :)
